This is one of the most creative pens Iíve seen in a while and it is absolutely fantastic! I would love to see more detailed steps on how you did this!

Many thanks guys.

At Mark and JohnU...... I cast my own blanks and for a while I contemplated using a shredded £5 note blank that I made a few blocks of about a year ago.
It would have fitted the theme, but would have looked like crap and OTT.

I've always been an advocate of using a 'Loud Kit - Plain Blank' .... OR 'Plain Kit - Loud Blank' Never both

.....almost dinner time , and with missus gone, it's a monster ribeye for me !!!

Edit In; Quick pic with it before being polished up, with the shredded fiver blanks....would not have worked

I think you made the correct choice with your blank. The only thing it’s missing ...is being on the front page!

I'll second that and freely relinquish the spot (with apologies to Charlie W who did the hard part).

That is fabulous. Just fabulous. What did you end up with for ID and OD on the cap ring? And cap threads? This is a lovely, timeless pen. Congratulations, Skip.

Greg, I bored the ring to suit the Spring Blossom kit. I replaced the kit clip, cap ring and finial. Perhaps I misled. Those are the custom bits. I also had to extend the cap length to accommodate the clip length. There is also a small brass plug in the end of the cap which I used to anchor the clip. The clip is threaded to 3mm and as the screw is in from the open end, the clip can be removed.
I'll take a quick pic and add it to this post..

Back in a mo...

Edit In; Pic added
